No, this is not Toad Manor. It’s the Hobbit House in York, Pa.

It’s called ‪the Hobbit House around York, Pa., and you can’t help but to look its way when you drive by it. Leslie Klinger, for one, got her wish to look inside. ‘I delivered pizza there on occasion. I was sooo excited the first time, they invited me in to have a look. Very kind and generous people,’ she wrote when this History Mystery photo appeared on the York Daily Record’s Facebook page. Another Facebook commenter, Heather Klinefelter, quipped: ‘Haha! I call it Toad Manor.’ Hobbits? Toads? We’ll side with the Hobbits. So, where does it stand? Have you ever had the opportunity to visit it? Find the answer and learn about a family that lived there: Hobbit House. This photo originally appeared in Scott Butcher’s ‘York’s Historic Architecture.’ Check out these scores of quizzes and fun tests.
